Do you like anime, K-pop and Asian snacks and drinks? Then you need to visit Foo Concepts in Rotterdam. On Instagram Foo Concepts is best known for the Hongkong eggwaffles with different toppings. I believe they are the first in Rotterdam to serve Hongkong eggwaffles.
OMG! An eggwaffle from Hongkong!
The eggwaffle in HK tasted crispy and crunchy. I didn’t expect that. The eggwaffle at Foo Concepts was soft and squishy. I actually expected a soft and squishy in HK, but eventually I found it in Rotterdam. Score!
I had my yearly high tea with Lazy Chipmunk at Foo Concepts. This was also my first time visiting and I was pleasantly surprised about many things.
1. K-Pop! My favorite songs playing in the air. If you don’t know any songs, its okay. K-Pop will touch your heart.
2. Cute decorations. They have a blue little animal Foo (it reminds me of a Pokemon) as their mascot. One wall is fully painted with Foo’s. When you look more carefully, you will see that he is cosplaying as many famous anime characters; Sailor Moon, Naruto, Totoro, Pikachu, Luffy and many more. On the other side of the room is a wall covered with wooden frames filled with cute stuff. You can actually buy all the items!
3. Delicious food. The most important thing of a cafe is still food and drinks and the food was so good! For the high tea we choose the savoury package. There is also a sweet version with ice on the eggwaffle.
Delicious onigirazu (sushi sandwich), a nice salad with edamame and wakame salad. Soft eggwaffle with pulled pork, cute shaped coconut jelly’s and a chocolate cake. Everything tasted so good! Only the pulled pork on the eggwaffle could use a bit more sauce. I also ordered a matcha latte with tapioca balls. The balls were perfect and the latte was yummy. The price for the high tea and drinks was 23 euro p.p. All in all, I need to go back and try more things from the menu.
Ideas for Foo
I really enjoyed my time at Foo Concepts, but I still have some ideas for improvement. We sat there for about 1-2 hours on wooden chairs. Eventually my bottom was hurting, because of the hard seating. So tip: more cushions to sit on.
The store is so cute and nicely decorated, but the website is quite empty. It’s still in progress. I think they can bring the atmosphere of the cafe to the website. Maybe with a long scrolling page, filled with delicious photos from their Instagram, because their Instagram game is strong. But maybe they don’t need a website, because already so many blogs are writing about them. Just like this blog…
Time to visit them!
